A former Noxian Headsman, Urgot used to think he knew what strength was. Then he was betrayed by Swain and found himself bound in chains, a slave in Zaun’s mines. There, he discovered a new form of strength: pain. He revels in the chaos of suffering, knowing that it makes him strong. Now—his body augmented with machinery—he knows that Nexus can never truly be ruled by strength while it is ruled at all. He seeks to destroy the leaders of Zaun and preaches to those who survive: there are no rules, only survivors.

PLAYING AS URGOT
Urgot is a force of destruction incarnate – an inevitable, unstoppable juggernaut who shoots, pulls and grinds his opponents to their deaths. His strength is evident, and his foes should never underestimate him. Running away is always an option.
Urgot wants to go toe-to-toe with the enemy; his knee cannons can wreak havoc once he’s up close and can unleash them all. Find the weakness of your enemies – or create it – and then wrap them up in chains and finish them off. Forget the nimble, elusive enemies; they are weak and prefer flight to combat. But anybody who dares to fight you head on? Show them true strength.
“They put me in chains, they gave me a weapon.”
TIPS AND TRICKS
Urgot’s ranged auto-attacks and Echoing Flames gives him significant poke against melee top laners, but are on a long cooldown early game. Without any built-in sustain, that poke is his only way of winning attrition wars.
Urgot’s legs don’t rotate when he turns, so you’ll have to maneuver around your opponents to make the most of Echoing Flames. Disdain helps Urgot take advantage of those trickshot back shotgun legs and make the most of his damage, while Purge helps him proc his passive multiple times in rapid succession (but slow Urgot’s movement). Position carefully to take advantage of all six legs.
Fear Beyond Death can be used to initiate for your team, but it’s best used to finish off a damaged foe. Slippery targets who might otherwise escape at low health can’t get away from Urgot’s meat grinder once they’re hooked!
